BERLIN, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Huawei Technologies HWT.UL on Wednesday welcomed a European Union strategy statement on 5G mobile networks, saying it was ready to work with its partners to ensure they are secure.

"This exercise is an important step towards developing a common approach to cybersecurity and delivering safe networks for the 5G era," a Huawei spokesman said.
